External Examiners

Print Friendly

The Board of Examiners includes an External Examiner, whose role is to assure standards of assessment and to provide a further source of advice on the Programme.  Students are sometimes invited to an informal meeting with the External Examiner in December/January May/June.

 

The External Examiner system forms a key part of the University’s quality assurance and enhancement mechanisms.  External Examiners help to ensure that degrees awarded by the University are comparable in standard to those awarded at other Universities, although their content may differ. They also ensure that the assessment system is operated equitably and fairly in respect of the treatment and classification of students and that the University’s regulations are consistently applied.
